Makeover: Lifted Root and Natural Ash Effect

Anne Moratto | August 20, 2016 | 3:12 PM

She calls this a “magical makeover” and we agree.  “This couldn't have had a better outcome!” says Bree Little (@breanna_anythingbutbasic)

PROCESS

STEP ONE: Started with a bleach soap cap of BlondorLightener and 30 vol mixed with shampoo. Process took roughly 6 minutes, bringing a pale ash blonde.

STEP TWO: I lifted the roots with same lightener mixture minus shampoo and added Olaplex. Processed for about 35-40 min lifting to level 10.

STEP THREE: On damp hair I applied a mixture of 1oz 8n, 1/2oz 6nb,1/4 oz 6t Redken Shades Eqon roots, staggering out.

“Processed for 25 min and Bam! There we are.”

Little posted this on Instagram and was asked: 

  • davidsean79nice color combo in your formula - let me ask why the t. I see it came out beautifully gorgeous.. just seeing your thought process on adding some t

To which she replied:

  • @davidsean79"t" is on the grey side and when playing around I found it adds a bit more of a natural ash effect. To me when added over a lifted root or lifted in general it helps keep a natural look versus a "color" if that makes sense? I use T a lot with ombre transition as well.

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was. She wanted to be an all over platinum blonde at first, but then had mentioned how she's always wanted to have purple hair. Her dream came true that day." Details here.
